[rrd-users] time zone issue

I have a time zone problem with RRD.
I understand that RRD uses UTC standard time for recording events/samples 
If I understand this correctly, it means that the recorded time (using the 
time() function) for anything will be the same, whether in Japan, US, UK, 
wherever on the planet, at the same point in time (allowing for minor 
individual clock time differences possible, of course).

The source of my recorded data is in Geneva, Switzerland. However, my 
portal, where I record this data is in San Jose, California, USA (it could 
also be anywhere else in the world).
When I graph this data via RRDtool it always has the US West coast time 
associated with it.
How can I change this to my local time on the graphs that RRDtool produces?
I may be missing something, but I cannot find a way other than fooling 
RRDtool into accepting false times, and graphing from those false times.
